This survey of Alessandro Twombly's works features Twombly's sculptures from 1986 to 2016. Unlike the sculptures by his father Cy Twombly, who assembled them as if they were collages composed of found pieces, Twombly's works are organic-looking sculptures made from a single piece of material. They recall fossilised coral, hardened streams of lava, objects found on the beach, or statues of archaic divinities. As different as they are from one another in appearance, they all invoke the elementary forces of nature. Their dynamic shapes visualise the idea of metamorphosis, the eternal transformation that is the basis for growth.Marks of Twombly's work are left on the surfaces of some of the sculptures, which are first cast in plaster or clay, and then in bronze or resin.
